Comment by Lisa yesterday
One other comment for JulieM. Perhaps it depends on the sailor's rating/job, but my sailor also has to go through ATT school prior to starting A school. He was PIR 9/19/14. He had one week of Indoc followed by one week of hold before starting ATT school. Also, ATT school started mid to late week instead of on a Monday:-).
Comment by Pollux yesterday

JuliaM, all new students first attend a one-week student indoctrination class which covers a whole array of topics. Then, depending on which which school they will be attending, they will either start the following week or be on hold waiting their classes to begin.

Does A School starts every Monday? My SR PIR on 11/14 and I wonder if he will start his school on the following Monday

Got it!

Comment by Pollux on October 9, 2014 at 5:54pm

They're totally guessing as how could they possibly even know when their recruits haven't even arrived here yet? But there definitely is no PIR Dec. 19th or 26th.

Comment by Anti M on October 9, 2014 at 1:27pm

Thanks.  Got the link for the graduations?  The RTC one only goes into November.  There are several folks saying their graduation is the 19th, so I'd love a link to help them out if they are just guessing.

(I thought none the 26th and the 2nd).
